Saudi Arabia still wants to buy F-15 fighters from the United States despite its decision to buy 132 advanced military aircraft from Britain but will not accept any limits on the use of the American planes, the Saudi defense minister said. Prince Sultan ibn Abdulaziz made the comment in London where he had signed an agreement to buy 72 Tornado fighters produced jointly by Britain, West Germany and Italy and 60 other aircraft in a deal valued at $4.3 billion. Jewish groups and members of Congress oppose the sale of F-15s to Saudi Arabia.
